Big news, for a limited time I’m having an album sale!  All albums will be 25% off until March 14th!  If you haven’t purchased an album, or you’d like to purchase a duplicate album for your parents this is a great time to take advantage of the offer.

An album will stand the test of time and is a tangible reminder of your big day.  These books can be passed down through the generations and will show your story to your children and grandchildren.  Who knows where digital images and technology will be years down the road.  All I know is that I have original photographs from my childhood and of my parents and grandparents that are still around.  But my personal photos from 10 years ago are lost in cyberspace somewhere.

I encourage all my clients to create a meaningful remembrance of their day in the form of an album.  My books are available in two different designs and can be completely customized to suit your tastes.

The first book is the Coffee Table Book, which comes with a box/sleeve cover.  Both the album cover and box are covered in linen or silk book cloth.  Custom logo stamping is available for an additional fee, as well as custom fabrics and other upgrades.

My clients tend to prefer this book because you can fit so many images in the book, due to it’s construction.  Books have a minimum of 100 pages / 50 spreads and are printed on thick, archival paper.

The Silk Flushmount Album is a more traditional wedding album, with pages constructed of photographic prints mounted to rigid archival board.  The album cover includes an inset image and is covered in colorful silks and linens.  All albums include a matching box with silk ribbon.

The biggest difference between this album and the Coffee Table Book is the printing, with this book having photographic paper prints.  Because they are mounted to a rigid board so they won’t bend, the book holds less images than the Coffee Table Book but is perfect for those who prefer a more traditional look.

If you’re interested in purchasing an album please reach out to me via email at or through my website HERE. Orders must be placed by Midnight PST on March 14th, 2017.

I’m excited to get started on your family heirloom!

If you’ve been following along on social media, you may have seen that I have been shooting a lot of Branding Sessions over the last year.  While these types of shoots have been a natural progression for my business, I have to thank the team over at Tailor & Table for starting it all.

I have worked with Natalia numerous times over the years, from shooting her wedding to watching her develop her event design business with co-founder Bart and executing numerous editorial shoots with them.  We had an idea for a shoot that morphed into more of a marketing-style shoot to capture images for their new website & branding that they were developing.

This is where my Branding Session idea was born.  I photographed Natalia & Bart creating floral arrangements, setting up decor and doing design work as well as lifestyle portraits of them.  Imagery of their final creations as well as artistic photos for their social media content were also part of the shoot.

We spent some time prior to the shoot discussing their brand, colors and how they want their clients to perceive them.  In the end, we were able to create imagery that incorporated those elements from their wardrobe selection down to the smallest details.

I absolutely thrive when I’m shooting at a new venue, seeing a place with fresh eyes for the first time.  I had been looking forward to Caitlin & Spencer’s wedding in Cashiers, North Carolina for some time.  I was intrigued when Caitlin told me that their venue, The Chattooga Club, only held 4 weddings per year.  I knew that it was going to be a very unique and stylish wedding, and it did not disappoint.  The couple’s family and friends were dressed to impress, and the club was designed to perfection by I Do Events.  You’ll just have to feast your eyes on the gorgeous imagesCashiers Wedding | Chattooga Club Wedding | | Melissa Schollaert Photographymelissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-02melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-03melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-04melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-05melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-06melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-07melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-08melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-09melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-10melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-11melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-12melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-13melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-14melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-15melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-16melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-17melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-18melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-19melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-20melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-21melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-22melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-23melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-24melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-25melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-26melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-27melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-28melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-29melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-30melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-31melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-32melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-33melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-34melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-35melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-36melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-37melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-38melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-39melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-40melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-41melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-42melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-43melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-44melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-45melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-46melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-47melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-48melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-49melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-50melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-51melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-52melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-53melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-54melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-55melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-56melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-57melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-58melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-60melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-61melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-62melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-63melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-64melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-65melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-59melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-66melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-67melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-68melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-69melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-70melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-71melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-72melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-73melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-74melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-75melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-76melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-77melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-78melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-79melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-80melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-81melissaschollaert-caitlinspencersneakpeek-82below to see for yourself.
